 A074025 Numbers n such that a triplewhist tournament TWh(n) exists. 2
 1, 4, 8, 16, 99999999999999999999 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The term a(5) = 99999999999999999999 is a fake, inserted to prevent this sequence being incorrectly returned by Superseeker. Of course it will be replaced by the correct value, once that is determined. The present state of knowledge, quoting from Ge & Lam and the link below, is that a TWh(n) exists iff n == 0 or 1 (mod 4), except for n = 5, 9, 12 and possibly excepting n in {17, 57, 65, 69, 77, 85, 93, 117, 129, 153}. After 16, the sequence continues 17?, 20, 21, 24, 25, 28, 29, 32, 33, 36, 37, 40, 41, 44, 45, 48, 49, 52, 53, 56, 57?, ... REFERENCES G. Ge and C. W. H. Lam, Some new triplewhist tournaments TWh(v), J. Combinat. Theory, A101 (2003), 153-159.

J. A. Sloane, Oct 16 2003 EXTENSIONS Of course this entry is much too short. But I have included it in the hope that this will encourage someone to settle the question of whether a(5) is 17 or 20 - i.e., does a TWh(17) exist? Link supplied by Jon E.
